Disabling BOS Brake Override Sensor

I was curious if there was a way to disable the BOS with a Ktuner? BOS is the system that cuts throttle when the break is applied on pretty much every car Honda has put out since 2011.

If you recall runaway Prius vehicles some time ago, this is required by law on all newer vehicles and we're certainly not up for the liability in breaking that.

It's actually not legally required in the US it has just been widely adopted.

I'm not using it for a street vehicle it's for a rally car, being able to shift weight forward with breaking is essential in preventing under-steer on tight corners.

We can't accept the liability of having this option.
